Aurora Vision Studio
Graphical Application-Building Interface
Zebra Aurora™ Vision Studio is dataflow-based software designed for machine vision engineers. It does not require programming skills, but it is still so powerful that it has been used in many of the most demanding vision systems.
MAKES VISION APPLICATIONS EASIER
Enhanced and optimized by machine vision experts for nearly 15 years, Aurora™ Vision Studio software is renowned for its ease of use – and the power it brings to all varieties of vision applications. Whatever customers want to capture, this software makes complex vision tasks (and their operators’ lives) so much easier.
The ease of use of Aurora™ Vision Studio belies the sophistication of the technology at work. It is one of the most powerful visual/ graphical development environments available. Based on dataflow, it comes with a comprehensive set of over 1,000 proven and ready-to-use filters. This enables operators to design a customized solution quickly and easily – all based on a simple, three-step workflow.
HARDWARE AGNOSTIC WITH 3D CAPABILITIES
Aurora™ Vision Studio software is hardware agnostic, so can be used with the vast majority of machine vision cameras available on the market, with out-of-the-box dedicated support for devices from all major manufacturers. 3D capabilities enable complex vision tasks and operators can also create custom user interfaces (HMI).
Why Choose Zebra Aurora™ Vision Library?
- It helps you develop vision systems much faster than with low-level programming.
- This is the most powerful graphical software on the market.
- You get everything you need for industrial image analysis – together with the highest performance and flexibility.
- The world is changing – and new challenges require new approaches.
Drag & Drop
All programming is done by choosing filters and connecting them with each other. You can focus all your attention on computer vision.
You Can See Everything
Inspection results are visualized on multiple configurable data previews; and when a parameter in the program is changed, you can see the previews updated in real time.
HMI Designer + Events
You can easily create custom graphical user interfaces and thus build the entire machine vision application using a single software package.
1000 Effective Filters
There are over 1000 ready-for-use machine vision filters tested and improved in hundreds of applications. They have many advanced capabilities such as outlier suppression, subpixel precision or any-shape region of interest.
The filters are aggressively optimized for the SSE/AVX/NEON technologies and four multicore processors. Our implementations are ones of the fastest in the world (as can be seen in the Performance section).
Loop, Conditions & More
There is no coding, but you can still create custom scalable program flows. Loop, conditions, and subprograms (marcofilters) are realized with appropriate data-flow constructs in the graphical way. Moreover, our software also supports parallel programming.
GigE Vision and GenTL
Aurora Vision Studio is a GigE Vision compliant product, supports the GenTL interface, as well as a number of vendor-specific APIs. Thus, you can use it with most cameras available on the market.
You can use user filters to integrate your own C/C++ code with the benefits of visual programming. It takes 30 seconds to update one after the recompilation.
C++ and .NET Generators
Programs created in Studio can be exported to C++ code or .NET assemblies. This makes it very easy to integrate your vision algorithms with applications created in C++, C# or VB programming languages.
